Best Week 3 Fantasy Football Players by Positions
Week 3 Top 3 For Free!
Lamar Jackson – Are we in for a show or what come Monday night? The two reigning MVPs will duke it out. Get your popcorn ready. All signs are leading to this being a shootout and it will live up to the hype. I give the edge to Lamar being that the Ravens have lost two close ones in the last two seasons to KC. Expect him to do it all.
Dak Prescott – After a surprising 3 rushing TDs last week, Dak will follow up this week with at least 3 passing TDs. Another great QB duel and high scoring affair, the Cowboys Seahawks game will certainly provide some fireworks. The Seahawks are giving up the most passing yards thus far in the season and struggle mightily to sack the QB. Big points coming for Dak Prescott.
Kyler Murray – What a start this guy is having. The former number 1 pick is making all his fantasy owners extremely happy. The Cardinals offense goes entirely thru him and the Lions defense wont be able to stop him. Rushing or passing, it does not matter, at least 4 total TDs from the superstar QB in Arizona.
Miles Sanders – The Eagles are 0-2. With the Bengals traveling to philly, it is must win time for the birds. Sanders was iffy to start the season with a hamstring issue. However, he had a healthy 20 carries last week against the Rams and a score. The Bengals are giving up 185 yards on the ground so far this season and I expect Doug Pederson to rely on his RB a great deal as the Eagles search for their first win of the season.
Austin Ekeler – Ekeler continues to be a bit underrated. 19 carries for 84 yards in Week 1 while also adding a catch. 16 carries for 93 yards in Week 2 while adding 4 catches. 20 touches in both games but also 20 productive touches. The Panthers have already allowed 6 rushing TDs! Ekeler is a money man this week.
Alvin Kamara – The smoothest cat in the NFL. The Packers LB unit is one of the weakest in the NFL. Their run defense as a whole is below average and when Kamara runs a route out of the backfield it will be like stealing candy from a baby as it usually is. This guy is already on fire this season with 4 TDs. He is certainly in store for another big night against GB.
Tyler Lockett – DK Metcalf is garnering a lot of attention in the first two weeks of the season. Lockett is quietly doing his usual thing. He has 16 targets in two weeks and 15 catches. Lockett and Russell Wilson just have an amazing chemistry. With the Cowboys in town, the scoreboard is going to light up a few times. Lockett is going to be open all over the middle of the field and I also predict he will get behind the defense for a long TD.
Amari Cooper – There is no doubt that the Seattle secondary is wondering how it will stop the Cowboys potent offense. No matter what scheme the Seahawks are trying to come up with, they just do not have a guy that can stay with Cooper. Seattle ranks dead last in pass yards given up and they also rank in the bottom half of the NFL with only 3 sacks thus far. Cooper has a whopping 23 targets in two games and will score his first TD of the season this week.
T.Y. Hilton – My surprise pick of the week. The Jets have not been able to stop the run yet this season. However, I trust that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is going to go all out trying to slow down Jonathan Taylor. With that being said, T.Y. Hilton is going to be Phillip Rivers favorite target on 3rd down or any passing attempts. The result will be significant gains and often.
Mark Andrews – I believe Andrews is already viewed as a top option at TE. However, I expect a big day for him against KC in what will be a shootout. Hollywood Brown will certainly draw some attention but Andrews is a matchup nightmare for any one of KC’s linebackers and even Tyrann Mathieu because of the size advantage.
Ian Thomas – Just a hunch. Completely out of the blue but that is fantasy football sometimes. Teddy Bridgewater is averaging 300 passing yards after his first two games in Carolina. Now with McCaffery down for a few games, Ian Thomas can get his opportunity to try and cash in.
Jimmy Graham – Graham has been used in the redzone this season. He caught a TD Week 1 against Detroit and Atlanta just let Dalton Schultz have a statline of 9/88/1.
Rodrigo Blankenship – The Colts will have a few drives stall against the Jets. Blankenship went 4/4 last week against the Vikings so he is already making a name for himself.
Robbie Gould – With Nick Mullens, I do not expect the 49ers offense to completely stall out. However, there are a number of injuries the Niners are dealing with that I believe will cost them to have to settle for 3.
Jason Myers – Myers will kick the game winning FG in this game. Take the over in this game, but with high scoring games like these, the kickers benefit also.
Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles are going to come out juiced up this week. Sitting at 0-2, there is no doubt that they will be trying to get after rookie Joe Burrow and the Bengals struggling Oline. Already one of the more aggressive defenses in the NFL, expect the Eagles to have some sacks and create turnovers.
Carolina Panthers – I am picking the Panthers to upset the Chargers this week. Although Justin Herbert looked good at times in his first start last week, I predict that the Panthers will do a good job of rattling the rookie. Also, the Panthers will score a touchdown on special teams in some capacity.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – The Broncos have suffered some major injuries to the offense. The Bucs should be licking their chops to play this banged up Denver team. Todd Bowles is one of the better defensive coordinators in the league and is known for his aggressive style.
